Join us to explore how South African municipalities and other stakeholders are leveraging opportunities in the circular economy and how to improve our impact through cooperation and coordination. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to share and learn from different experiences in South Africa and the Netherlands and to contribute to the development of a new Circular Economy initiative in South Africa that will accelerate circular economy solutions.

This workshop is part of a larger bi-annual event called #cocreateMYCITY, which aims to bring the sharpest minds from South Africa and the Netherlands together to develop Smart Solutions for Resilient Cities. Together we can create urban environments that are environmentally sustainable and economically competitive with a high quality of life.
